Each bar shows the contribution of a single driver to GHG emission trends during a determined period. The thick short black lines indicate the combined effect of all emission drivers, i.e. the overall GHG emission trend during the period considered. Different data sources have been used for the calculation of carbon intensity, which may result in a high uncertainty of the results for this driver.

Take a shower rather than a bath!
This way you can cut your water consumption by a third! Pause the water flow when soaping and avoid long showers. A shower uses about 30 to 80 litres, while a bath uses 150 to 200 litres of precious water. Install low-flow shower heads and think before buying a power shower.
